It's been some time since this post, but is it this one by any chance?
View attachment 104980

Funnily enough, two different sellers, $1000 difference. But hey, one of them has free shipping :lol:
This is super common with japanese resellers. They all list identical listings and basically act as middlemen for a hefty fee. It drives me insane when I see 8 identical listings for a Kasumi random star because of dickheads like them

Yeah, I've seen that every time I've tried to buy Japanese products. Happened to me last when I was hunting for an Edwards E-Scythe at the beginning of last year, it was a pain in the ass navigating through that crap.

How are other Daemoness customers finding comms with Dylan at the moment? I emailed him at Christmas to ask how things were going but he didn't reply, and I tried again last Monday by replying to an email he sent me a year ago, where he was talking about things getting back to normal and "info and pics soon" (the last I heard from him), but he hasn't replied to that either. I was using the [email protected] email address.

I noticed he hasn't posted anything on Instagram or Facebook since December either, so curious to know whether anyone else has heard anything?

This thread is inactive since march and I sent one message for the fourth anniversary of my order last November with no answer, the last message I have from him is from Jun 30, 2020, he said, your message is complicated I will answer tomorrow... he never did XD.
You are not alone, the man is just busy so let's be patient, if you ask for a refund he may answer for real. He certainly don't have any issues or we would be aware about it.

The top is that he re-opened the order book on the official site :


don't dead open inside.png

that's the sign that Dylan is healthy and the list must be more clear those days.

So the point is to just be patient, people are really waiting over here, no cabal or anything (I tested the people over here because they was a little bit crazy salty two or three years ago after the black green guitar micro incident XD and I said wtf, the work of the man is unique and incredible so you want to do a list and to pressure an artist? the first degree porn actor. Their reaction was really top notch, nice and trust worthy with ad hominem and all the stuff, I laughed a good time) that's the word, just trust the man, he will get in touch with you when he will be ready for you, just get a good skype setup till then and think/dream about your build just as us all.

I saved the money for this guitar four time and have enough for a new cheap car now XD with a guitar teacher salary XD well... I don't do drugs or alcohol and auto-destructive stupid stuff like sex with rando... just forget about it that will come if he is in the mood for it, just keep 4-5k for it in a corner, or buy a house if you want to be extremely patient about it. You already did everything I said ? ok sorry for the life backseat.​

Honestly I get the total opposite reading of it. That order book shouldn't be open when we're like 7+ years deep in the queue. I hope it doesn't mean he needs new deposits to continue current orders.

That's probably what it is.

I'm sure it stings, but it beats the alternative: the business folding leaving nothing, which is usually how this all goes.

I will say, anyone putting an order in now is a damn fool. I'm sure some moron will though. :lol:

There is nothing on the Daemoness Facebook or Instagram accounts about the order book being open. No posts there since December.

There is a post last summer about working on a huge batch of guitars. That would have steady small batches of guitars sent off for lacquer at different times so there would be a steady stream of complete guitars going out this year if it all went to plan. If people who ordered in 2017 haven't had their builds started yet then the build queue is still quite long. I don't know when he opened and closed the books so there are a few years where he wasn't taking orders.

I'd like to think that's an error about the books being open. We all know on this site that it is not a good sign when a builder needs fresh deposits to finish previous builds. Dylan also said he wasn't offering custom guitars anymore once the back log is taken care of.

I m pretty sure the order book is not open, this picture is there in his website for few years now and i guess he didn't bother to change it, the same way he does not bother to reply to his clients. Let's not forget there are people with deposits in 2015-2016 that have not seen their guitars yet.

Yes Mehegama, if you all are right that's actually spooky and I keep on worrying a little then, that would be great to have something to be sure that everything is going the smooth way, here I just had nothing concrete to reinsure me since Barnes left but this forum and the other social media, I really miss the guy.

We do a list of the builds to do guys? (jk)

But that's strange, on the official site, the get in touch button is available and send to the entry I used in 2017 already, I hope that's wrong then, I just keep on trusting the man and being patient, I really don't want to upset him or anything, artist freedom is the most important thing to me, I just hope he is not the auto-destructive kind of man and that I'm not being a fool or too much of a naive guy.

I bet some of you rapidly judge me the hard way on this one XD we have a bet with my wife, she bet 100 on that's dead I bet 100 on that will go on don't worry XD MaxOfMetal agree 100% with my wife, she even said his last sentence literally in 2020, JUST TRUST THE MAN I said... and still say and she go the trash way.

/me feel lonely on this one, save me mister Humphries.

I took a peak at the website's file system and that 'Order Book Now Open' photo is in a content folder titled '2018' along with all the other pictures on the 'Order' page. If you check the Wayback machine, it confirms that the page is unchanged from its first index in November 2018 until its most recent index in late 2021. Moreover, that Order page didn't exist until a website resign dated to around the same time as that page's creation, as the old site (seen circa January 2018 here) had a 'Custom Order' page instead, which had a different URL.

My guess is that the order book is not open and it's been so long since anyone here's looked at Dylan's website that we all just forgot that image was there :lol:

I'm 2 months short of 5 years since I sent a deposit in. Haven't heard anything since then. Curious where the queue stands currently.

Do you mean just the first deposit, or the second payment when it's time to choose woods? I paid the first deposit in Nov 2016 then the second in Nov 2019 but since then nothing apart from a reply from Dylan in April 2021 saying how things were back to normal, "info and pics soon", etc.. I know "soon" is not very specific but I hoped it meant something less than a year.

I've just sent him a reminder that he hasn't replied to my polite enquiry from 2-3 weeks ago but I'm not very optimistic that I will get a reply. I will keep posting here with any developments or, more likely, about the lack of them.

First deposit. Paid that back in July of 2017. All my communication back then was with Barnes I should note. I haven't had any communication with Dylan directly.

I was only in contact with him for the deposit and then a video call like 4 years later. They promised more video calls, but that didnt happen. Not that I mind

It's pretty apparent over the years that the queue does not move predictably. There are some instances back in this thread where it also doesn't seem to follow "first come, first served".

Friend and I put down first deposits in Summer 2018. I have since bailed (and did receive a refund). My friend checked in through Instagram back in Jan 2022 and Dylan told him that his build is still years away. No further discussion since Summer 2018.
